Two weeks ago, our Ottawa location had the pleasure of hosting our friends over at CBC Radio-Canada! Coach Skylar takes Daniel Bouchard back in time and shows him how to throw an axe, Daniel Boone Style!

CBC Radio Canada goes Axe Throwing

CBC Radio-Canada is informing, enlightening and entertaining, sharing Canada’s journey step by step, day by day, with the news, content and commentary and culture that Canadians need today, tomorrow and in the future.

Daniel from CBC shares a childhood memory of watching the Daniel Boone show where Daniel Boone is seen throwing an axe and splitting a tree in two. He recalls thinking, maybe one day he will try throwing an axe. Daniel Bouchard asks

“where does this idea of throwing axes come from?”

Coach Skylar shares that throwing axes became a popular game for the lumberjacks in Ottawa. It was a traditional past time that is now gaining popularity all over the world!

Next, Coach Skylar provides Daniel with a brief lesson on how to throw the axes. Daniel takes a few throws and is quick to blame the axe as the problem. Although he quickly makes up for it, as he ‘sticks’ his final throw with the large axe!
